Well, it’s official. After all of the anticipation and build-up, the big day has come and gone. His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge is one year old.
And what’s a birthday without a few gifts? While sources say that George’s immediate family didn’t go overboard, the same can’t be said of other well-wishers. Here is a sample of his very odd birthday haul:
- A bottle of Pinot Noir from a New Zealand winery, which will be stored at Kensington Palace until his 18th birthday.
- A faux fur cloak fit for a king, courtesy of PETA
- A limited-edition £5 silver coin in honor of the big day was created by the Royal Mint
- Personalized Ugg Boots from retailer MyFirstYears.com
- A baby crocodile named in his honor from Australia’s Northern Territory, which will thankfully remain in its natural habitat for now
- Clothes – couture, no doubt – from David and Victoria Beckham and Jamie and Jools Oliver
- A goat and a fatted bull from tribal elders in Kenya
- A plastic replica of Kensington Palace and a toy figurine of himself from Mothercare
- Three meerkats fittingly named “George,” “Alexander” and “Louis” from the Dudley and West Midlands Zoological Society
- A pint-sized surfboard from the mayor of Manly Beach in Australia
- A $1 million diamond-encrusted nail clipper – though it wasn’t gifted to the Prince, it was created in his honor. And is available for purchase, just in case you’re interested.
